if you're using as2, assign your mc a linkage id and use
attachMovie() in an onMouseDown handler to bring your mc to the
stage and then assign its _x and _y properties to be the same as
the _xmouse and _ymouse properties.
if you're using as3, assign your mc to a class and use a
stage listener to create class member and assign its _x and _y
properties to be the same as the stageX and stageY properties of
the mouseEvent class.
